    First of all WELCOME!!!!

    I started digital scrapbooking about 7 years ago because my life crashed and I needed to focus on the positive that was around me. It was hard but scrapbooking truly helped!!!

    I am so sorry about your babies - I don't have the right words, but I'm sorry and it made my heart hurt to read that.

    I am impressed that you channelled your frustration with passing 2 laws. That is SOME work!! My son worked at our state capitol last year and this summer and walked us through on what it takes to pass a law. There are so many steps and it is not for the faint at heart!

    So welcome sweet girl - hope you jump right in. You sound amazing!

    Kimberly - We are so blessed to have someone as incredible as you join our community here at The Pad. I cannot imagine the devastation of the loss of a child. It just shouldn't happen. There is no one I admire more in this life than a parent that has lost their child. The strength of character it would take just to get out of bed every day would be heroic. The fact that you have taken your tragedy and turned it into something so positive and meaningful for so many families, plus our nation as a whole, is simply nothing short of miraculous. I'm so looking forward to learning more about you, your family and your journey through your scrapping.

    We are (IMHO) the best community in Digiland. I encourage you to jump right in and not be shy. If you need help with anything at all, just ask. Someone will quickly help you. Thanks for choosing us! :grouphug

    Hiya - I'm new here but I've been scrapbooking for over ten years with the last eight years ago being predominately digital. My first son was stillborn in 2015 but we were blessed with the arrival of a second son in April this year and I've been scrapping with renewed vigour since! Scrapbooking has been my 'therapy' through the last few years (it took many IVF attempts to conceive both our sons and there have been losses throughout) and I'm really excited about the process of capturing my son's life over the coming years.

    Oh wow! So many new people! Welcome everyone!!

    @Kimberly_Wade So sorry about your lost. I hope you will find some positivity here at the Pad!

    @wendy johnson Welcome! I love your scrapping style! You're gonna fit right in! :)

    @Gary Oxlade So great to see another male try out this art! Make sure you join the monthly challenges to earn discount coupons and come to the chat tonight and finish a page in time to get a money coupon! Starting out can be very expensive but it's worth it.

    @MargaretB Hello and welcome to the Pad! Yes, you have to register at the store separately. You can use the same name, but it's technically a different account. You plan on spending some money already? ;)

    @Meredith78 Very sorry to hear about your struggles Meredith! A lot of people here use scrapping as their therapy, especially Art Journaling. But anything is welcome here and I hope you're gonna have a great time!

    Yes, you do. You can use your same username and password but they are 2 different accounts. Welcome to the Pad.
